Did the mongols really drink horse’s blood? What was the one thing that made the mighty Genghis Khan tremble in his boots? Why did Mongol soldiers wear silk underwear and leather soaked in horse wee? What made Genghis Khan's international spy network so super-sneaky?
Armed with an intriguing tale, fabulously foul facts, wonderfully wacky illustrations and our time-travelling commentator Yakkety Yak’s appalling jokes, Nayanika Mahtani sets out to explore whether Genghis Khan really was the evil villain that he is often made out to be.
Prepare for a riveting, rip-roaring read—packed with unusual surprises!
